Sponsored by Lorman Education Services
Learn proven techniques to get the most out of the voir dire process.
Voir dire is one of the most important phases of a jury trial. However, the rules and procedures governing the jury selection process are often informal, subject to the broad discretion of the trial court, and can vary widely between jurisdictions and judges, and even different cases before the same judge.
A trial lawyer's strike decisions are some of the most important strategic decisions made in any jury trial; yet, often those decisions must be made with little time for reflection and based upon vague or incomplete information. This topic will provide you with effective techniques for eliciting, organizing and intelligently using the most complete and accurate information possible through the voir dire process.
Regardless of whether you represent plaintiffs or defendants, whether you are in state court or federal court, whether your case is civil or criminal, or whether you are preparing for your first jury trial or your 100th, this topic will provide practical advice for getting the most out of the voir dire process.
